BARCELONA-A young man has stabbed his own mother to death then thrown her body from their second-floor flat.
The 28-year-old son has been arrested and has confessed to the murder of his mother, police said.
The crime took place in the Guinardo area of Barcelona in the early hours of this morning.
Emergency services were called to the apartment and found the body of the 56-year-old woman in the street.
The son was found wandering in nearby streets dressed in blood-stained clothes.
Named only as Antonio BH, he told police that after having an argument with his mother, he stabbed her and threw her body from the second floor of the flat.
He was taken to the Hospital Clinic in Barcelona for doctors to evaluate his psychological state.
Neighbours said they had not heard any shouting or cries from the flat.
Luis Marcos, a neighbour, said the accused did not have much to do with the local people.
"He left in the morning for work and returned at night," he said.
But he added that he did not appear to have any psychological problems.
